How it works: Borrow, Grow, Return!

BORROW: Check out a seed packet from the Seed Library. Borrow only as much as you can grow. No ID needed and no due date.

GROW: Plant your seed in your garden or pots and watch them grow. Go to "Where To Start" tab for information on how to grow your seeds.

RETURN: Not required, but you can harvest your seeds from your vegetables and fruits at the end of the growing season.  Return seeds to the Seed Library in the original envelop with label or fill in a label with information and add to a new envelop. Do complete the donation form so that we know who is return seeds to the library.
